Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.

– 1 Timothy 4:12 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

Timothy was a young man, but Paul wanted to make sure that Timothy would not hide behind his youth. How? By living a life that is worth living. Giving the years of our youth to God is not a waste of time; it is the building blocks that the church needs to minister from generation to generation. We all need those who can set examples that will challenge us. For those who are young, are you ready to live in such a way that older generations come closer to God?
